Telstra, Optus & CBA Cause Thredbo Mayhem

Thredbo visitors have continued to face mounting technical difficulties, as mountain operators deal with both a downed Optus network, and constant problems accessing the Commonwealth Bank network.

Sources claim some Thredbo ticket operators have resorted to paper credit card forms, coupled with reports Telstra cut Optus’ cable almost a week ago.

Reports claim Optus customers have been unable to obtain data or voice services the last few days, after Telstra engineers sought to fix a cable problem discovered last week.

Some businesses claim network difficulties have resulted in many hand processed payments, with some outlets forced to close early.

Outside Thredbo, several Commonwealth Bank customers have taken to social media to express their outrage, with many unable to access the bank’s online and mobile banking platform.

Many non-CBA VISA card transactions via the bank’s terminals have allegedly also been affected.

The bank formally acknowledged issues around 7.30am this morning, asserting service resolutions were rolling out throughout the day.

“You may not be able to make payments or access all features while logged on this morning. Please try again later,” Commbank’s website said.
